So, what is crystalline wax?

Crystalline wax is a natural or synthetic substance that has a crystalline structure and a waxy consistency. It is commonly used in the food industry as a coating agent to improve the appearance, texture, and shelf life of foods such as fruits, vegetables, and candies. Crystalline wax helps to prevent moisture loss, reduce oxidation, and protect against physical damage during transport and storage. It is often blended with other wax types to achieve specific properties such as hardness, flexibility, and melting point. However, it should be noted that some people may have allergies or intolerances to this ingredient, so it is important to read product labels carefully.
